The food was delicious and service was excellent. Brunch food prices are a little more expensive than a casual restaurant but overall worth the value. Highly recommend the macaroons as well!

It wasn't terribly crowded on a Monday evening, but I have been there when it's been much busier and the noise level is still relatively low.
Everything was fabulous. We both had the scallops (which was a feature) and they were expertly prepared.
My friend and I enjoyed a lovely, leisurely dinner and cannot wait to go back!

We love Paris 66 as a place with lovely service and good, unpretentious French fare. Our waitress, Mary Lise, is so incredibly nice and lovely, we would go there just to chat with her. The bread is good, this time we had the escargot and a foie gras, followed by a lovely but simple salad. My wife had the monk fish special, but there was only one left. It looked great. I had the pork with prunes, which was good but a bit over cooked. The potatoes and veggies that accompanied the mains were very good.

I was thrilled that the waitress is better at French. The food is ok. I was surprised the bread was not heated and the butter cream was frozen and not whipped. The noise level was way higher than I thought. Might come again to try other things

The food is good here, though I have to say it is overpriced. For people who have never tried authentic French food, Paris 66 can give you an idea as to what you could expect. Keep in mind that in France the food will be at least 3x better and the price will be less. A dinner for two cost us about $100, that equals to roughly 89 Euros. The meal included Escargots, two main dishes, two beers and a wine glass of white wine. In Paris my wife and I would have paid roughly 40 Euros for this meal, that's equal to about $50 USD. My point is that if you're French and miss home, you can come to this place and get a little taste of home, but it won't be the real thing. If you're not French and want to get an idea of France, Paris 66 is the place to come. Make sure you have an open mind and an open wallet.

The service was fantastic, our waiter was very nice, fun to talk to, and responsive to your questions. Most of the staff seems to be French, which is really nice. My wife enjoyed talking to the staff in French, as she is French and having a little taste of home goes a long.

The food presentation was good as well, I was not surprised there. French cuisine usually involves a really good presentation of their dishes. The food portion is also on par with what you can expect in France.

The food itself is good, not great, but good. However, I believe that the reason for this is because of the ingredients. It is difficult to acquire the proper ingredients in the USA for making a unique dish from abroad. For example, the Coq au Vin dish requires the meat of a Rooster, not a chicken. However, I doubt that Paris 66 will go around killing Roosters. This dish is unique as most French won't eat this dish if a chicken is used. The texture and flavor is not the same. My point is that, the food here could be better if Paris 66 were able to source better ingredients, preferably from France. If they were able to, the price of a dish would be $45 instead of $32.

Will I come again? Oui!

I was very excited to celebrate my birthday at Paris 66 and was a little let down. The restaurant is decorated very cute but it is very small. Had it been a warmer day, we may have accepted their offer of being seated on their deck. The two top table we were at was very close to a 6 top table and the wall separating the kitchen from the seating area. My husband tried very hard not to hit the women's back as he cut his food, while watching flames appear behind my head over the wall. For what we paid , the only courses my husband and I really enjoyed were our appetizers and dessert (totally recommend the macaroons and their signature coffee drink). Our main course was good but not outstanding and a bit flavorless. Our waitress was WONDERFUL and very funny. She made sitting so close to the table next to us bearable. I may try them again - off night perhaps? But I don't think I would rush back.

Enjoyed our meal. Well cooked good flavor. I would recommend trying it out. Except for a baby crying it had nice ambiance.
Realize that this is French cooking. If you have a dairy aversion don't go here. If you are looking for all you can eat or huge plates of food don't go here.
We loved it.
Good service

I visited Paris 66 for the first time with my wife. The atmosphere was classic French bistro- cozy, intimate, but with a buzz of happy eaters. I could see that a lot of people were regulars as they were greater by the friendly staff on a first name basis. Our waiter, from France with a thick Parisian accent, was helpful in guiding us through the menu. He recommended some dishes over others when we asked his opinion. When I inquired about a bottle of wine, he steered us to a bottle that was going to be added to the wine list the following week- it was a good choice that did not break the bank. The entire experience was fresh and delightful and we will be adding Paris 66 to our "approved" bucket list of restaurants. Magnifique.

We dine at Paris 66 three or four times a year and always find the food and ambiance to be excellent! The staff is very friendly, non-intrusive and generally excellent. On this Saturday evening visit he waitstaff was very busy but still managed to do admirable job. A visit to Paris 66 comes close to dining at an upscale Parisian bistro!
